Where To Buy: Tea Oh
A sweet symphony of toffee and caramel flavours make this a nice after dinner treat.
Years ago I had a candle business on the side. By that I mean I resold candles…I didn’t make or blend them myself but I was constantly smelling candles looking for the most powerful aroma with closest possible “smell-match” to the description. This was one of those flavors that was hard to match – at least in candles, that is. I was able to find all sorts of Creme Brulee Scented Candles but they all smelled different…completely different! I ended up finding a local crafter nearby that got the smell “Right On”. That’s what the aroma of this flavored Rooibos reminded me of…that perfectly scented Creme Brulee Candle I found years ago!
Since then I have moved on to other things and no longer sell candles but one thing that stuck with me was smelling everything! And I mean EVERYTHING! My mother laughs at me because if we go to the market I smell the fresh made bread…I still smell candles when I come across them…I smell ALL my teas (that’s why I almost always include the aroma of them in my reviews)…and now that we are selling another line of natural foods – I have been smelling everything that is available in our catalog!
Having said all that…the aroma of this Creme Brulee from Tea Oh is amazing! It’s Creme Brulee to the fullest extent!
The taste is a little lighter than I thought it would be…more subtle. It’s like this…you have your Rooibos and then you have your flavoring…so…in short, it’s a good flavored rooibos but you can still taste the rooibos.
I really did enjoy my cuppa but the aroma was what got me with this one! And it sure did stir up some memories! Thanks Tea Oh! Nicely Done!
